The VPRO Big Screen Award is the result of years of collaboration between IFFR and VPRO. The films selected for the Big Screen Competition are presented to an audience jury composed of five film lovers. Together they determine which film they think deserves to be shown in film houses across the Netherlands and broadcast on television on NPO2 after the festival. The winner of the VPRO Big Screen Award wins a cash prize of €30,000, half of which goes to the distributor who decides to buy the film.
